Rage Demoed Simultaneously on all Three Platforms - 60 FPS Across the Board

The Rage presentation at QuakeCon 2010 featured live playthroughs of the same content across all three platforms: PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. All three platforms ran at a solid 60 frames-per-second without hitching even during intense action.

if i get this i would like the pc version but to be honest from what ive seen it doesn't look that special apart from graphics. im willing to give it a chance though because ive only looked at the e3 footage.

I've never liked ID games in the past because they seemed to be more of a showcase of their engine rather than a good game. The games were decent, but nothing too memorable.

Myze4796d ago (Edited 4796d ago )


While I completely disagree with your overall sentiment with ID, I will say that they haven't produced or developed any really good game in over 10 years (Quake 3 Arena was their last really good game). If someone doesn't agree, please tell me a really good game since then (Doom 3? Quake 4? Enemy Territory? Not terrible, but definitely not great, and two of those are from Raven Software). No one can legitimately deny ID's or Carmack's accomplishments with the creation of the FPS with Wolfenstein, Doom and Quake, but I feel that Rage will be a test to see if they are still capable of releasing games that are more than just technically impressive.

I'm sure some will disagree with this, but as far as I know, it's ok to be skeptical (at least a little bit) of a developer that has taken a 10 year break from being top tier. I am, personally, expecting the game to be great, but time will tell if that expectation is reached.

Id has a lot of ground to make up. People are beginning to wise up and realize it wasn't piracy that made their sales slump. It was mediocrity.

If you were a pc gamer when quake wars came out did you buy

quake wars
unreal 3
or cod4?

the gamers chose tf2 and cod4 and the dev's for the first 3 went on to blame piracy. Though Crysis went on to sell a few million when hardware caught up.

That said I'm looking forward to RAGE. I'm probably one of the few on my steam list that does though. Which is why I say they have a lot of ground to make up.

I hope the PS3 version truly does run at 60FPS with no compromises like screen tearing or lack of anti-aliasing, because I really want to buy more multiplatform games for my PS3.

jambabie694796d ago (Edited 4796d ago )

but i get the feeling you feel like i do saber. i mean hell the ps3 is almost 4 yrs old and i still feel like before i buy a multiplat for mine i'm playing russian roulette.

granted in MOST cases it's gotten better, and i think rage will be one of those cases that it will be fine. also man do like me kinda lol and keep in my mind, some things are exaggerated so much that those on the internet make mtns outta mole hills- happens a lot with multiplats these days.

why i like demos- i can dl the ps3 demo and the 360 demo and see some what for myself- but you can't go buy that 100%. all i do is mainly look for performance issues that are real bad, like you mentioned and i pay attention to the controls. also i go buy how long the demo was released before the full version- but that's not 100% neither.

it's a shame 4 yrs later some of us like you and me still feel this way. some of these devs really need to get it together. i understand money and time restraints, but shit it's been 4 years, and either way i spend 60 bucks- i think if i buy it for my ps3, i should atleast get the same experience as the ones that buy that EXACT SAME GAME for 60 bucks on their 360.

see ya.

ThanatosDMC4796d ago

Get Fallout 3: GOTY if you dont all ready have it.

SmokeyMcBear4796d ago

don't worry. Usually the ps3 multiplatform games are the ones getting free DLC... well that's unless you don't like free DLC.

n4gno4796d ago (Edited 4796d ago )

Screen tearing is an xbox speciality, first, and second, most of the best games are exactly the same, sometimes a little better for one or other, but nothing like xbox fanboyz want to believe !

by the way, uggly xfanboyz like saber, jambabie and others trying to pretend they have a ps3, they care about ps3 version, just to troll a little more, is really pathetic, lies = no bubble.

*"rage" game, the new hope for xfanboyz, i knew i would have seen tons of xfanboyz, with their stupid agree/disagrees, like on npd numbers (when 2 months in a year xbox is doing better than the others)

edit : some guys, are jumping on news for a demo comparision for mafia, only when ps3 port is not as good as it would have been, and keep thinking mafia is a bad port, even if after that news, another news specify clearly that the definitive version is way better, and prove it with screenshots (grass, hello) !! poor xbrain living in dreamland, always choosing to remember the one or two little thing that don't hurt them (reality is hard, with 4 millions more ps3 then xbox sold last year, more games sold on ps3, best exclusives, graphics, bluray, best motion controler, 3D, etc)

There will be no AA for console versions of Rage. Announced at Quakecon.

I hate such articles..

Just tell us, which version looks better!!! 360 or PS3?

aGameDeveloper4796d ago

On the big screens, it was not possible to really see any difference (they all looked beautiful). I'm sure the PC will support higher resolutions and better filtering, of course.

Darkfocus4796d ago

lol some tool actually thinks the pc version won't look better.

Eiffel4796d ago

Yeah Doom, wasn't memorable at all, nor was Wolfenstein, Quake... /s

All the fanboys were talking so much crap about the ps3 version of rage because it was running under 30 fps on ps3 and 60 on 360. And I said why don't u guys just wait until John carmack figures it out and now it looks like he did. The ps3 is now running at 60fps and you guys basically owned urself.

solar4796d ago

but what resolution on the consoles?

raztad4796d ago

A very good question indeed. Is there any AA? dynamic environments?

fatstarr4796d ago

man if there is an even ground between all 3 that means something is not being pushed to the limits.

Its like if they showed you x game running 60fps same graphics and everything on ps3 wii and 360
people would be complaining going the game can look better... same theory and concept

gtamike4796d ago

changing disks is so last gen

Letros4795d ago

Using any disks is so last gen

vhero4796d ago

60fps on any next gen console manes the graphics are gonna take a hit.. I am sorry but it's true..

IcarusOne4795d ago (Edited 4795d ago )

I would love to see frame rates on a 24fps scale. I know I'm probably in the minority, but I don't really like 60fps. It feels to arcadey. Forza's races run @ 60fps, but the replays scale down to something like 48 - maybe even 24. The result: something that looks much more like a movie. It takes on that epic quality of motion that you only get from something cinematic. It also allows the game to boost other graphical tidbits like depth of field, AA, and poly counts.

Another good example is Bioshock. As is, I think the game is capped around 48fps, which is a variant of 24fps (the frame rate all movies are shot in). In the options, you can unlock the framerate and it jumps up toward 60, maybe even higher. And it looks like shit.

If your goal is something cinematic, why do they ignore the framerates? They strive to copy everything else that filmmakers do, why not the motion?

mega BIG time4795d ago

why is the ps3 the slow loader?
